Stop buying that bottled stuff and try my DIY ketchup. It’s fast, fun and delicious!

You’ll need:

  • 1 large onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/3 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 – 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 can (14.5 ounces) unsalted organic diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 2 teaspoons water

Here’s how to make it:

  1. In a food processor, add all the ingredients except the olive oil, cornstarch and water. Process to a liquid.
  2. Heat a large saucepan over medium-high heat. Add the olive oil to the pan. Add the tomato mixture. Bring to a boil and cook, stirring occasionally, until reduced to 2 cups, about 10 minutes.
  3. Place the cornstarch in a small bowl and add the 2 teaspoons of water. Stir until smooth. Add cornstarch mixture to pan and cook 1 minute or until mixture thickens, stirring constantly.
  4. Cool. Store in an airtight container for up to two weeks.
